A Durham man returned from a restaurant Tuesday evening to find dozens of firefighters putting out the flames of what used to be his home. Flashing lights from fire trucks stretched along the 4100 block of Olde Coach Road in the Pope’s Crossing neighborhood in Durham. New Hope Fire Departments all responded to the call, which went out just after 6:50 p.m. “It was just orange going up 20 feet above the house,” said Jason Wheeler. Wheeler lives down the street from where the fire happened. He said the flames started to spread to trees around the home, but firefighters were able to act fast.
